Spice. Fear campaigns are leading to destroyed lives

Hi, I am a normal, healthy 24 year old male who was recently in good standing with society. I am currently an infantryman in the Army Old Guard, the ceremonial unit mainly charged with laying fallen soldiers to rest. I loved my job; I was really good at it. I smoked weed ten times a day before the military; it was a big joke with the other soldiers. I also had a huge drinking problem my first year here that no one knew about; I drank every day, every morning, immediatelly after work, and constantly during the weekends. People knew about that too and everyone laughed and got just as shit faced.
People were getting dui's, guys were dying in car accidents. It was sad, and I was getting sick, but all this was ok and almost encouraged being in the military. Drink as much as you can, get girls as drunk as they can, hit each other, hit your wives as long as they keep their mouth shut: none of these actions will get you kicked out of the military so its ok. If you die in a drunk driving accident, dont worry about it. You'll get a nice funeral and everyone will carry your nametag around. DRINK! DRINK! DRINK! DRINK! but don't smoke Spice. Oh God, don't smoke spice. Please don't smoke spice. "They say it ****s up your mind. I heard a dude shot his wife and kid while on the stuff. It'll make you eat faces. You'll see things and even see them when your not smoking. You'll never be the same again."

What? I smoked spice and incense EVERY SINGLE DAY, before work, during work, after work HEAVILY. Did i even exhibit one violent thought, let alone action? No way!! The stuff is not like that! It's a fear campaign that makes people think this! The "drug knowledge" pamphlets warn of "SERIOUS" side effects such as ANXIETY! HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE! CONFUSION! LOSS OF COORDINATION! ya no duh, the shit makes you high. (The only anxiety I had was early on wondering if someone was going to kick down the door and bust me for smoking spice) It's awesome. It's a drug, i'm not debating that its a drug. I've only smoked weed, drank, and now smoked synthetics like spice and incense. I love drugs. I love everything about them. I love the culture. I love the bright upbeat, laid back nature of people on drugs. I also love that black hole people spiral into; crawling into a hidden space in today's world and slowly kill themselves with addiction. I also love people fighting their addiction, realizing they're dying, fighting the good fight, and making themselves into successful, sober, wonderful people with new and hungry leases on life. All in all, drugs are a very beautiful piece of the world. Just as beautiful as any war story or love story.

But there are people out there, people with one mindset: destroy. People who play God and judge. People who play Satan and accuse. People who play the Devil and destroy. For some reason these people fear and want to kill anyone who does drugs, but they can't kill them so they settle with ruining their lives. Throwing them in jail, giving them criminal records, labeling them as dangerous, damaged, slow, confused. So when people crawl into their black hole, they can never get out while the sober vigilantes make laws to stomp them into the ground and get everyone to laugh at them. Why do people do this to their fellow man? Shit happens, people get hooked on drugs, but give them the chance they'll fix themselves and if they don't, they'll die. Just like any other unhealthy life style option. But now drugs is a crime and with crime comes death because a war has been created where the black has to fight the white to keep the money flowing. Now that it's a crime, it's become two sided: one side is trying to hunt and kill the other, the other is trying to keep business going, pushing it like cigarettes, and kill the ones trying to hunt and kill them. What's your opinion on this?

I am currently being discharged from the Army because I confessed to using spice. It was a laid back setting, I wanted to confess and start my journey to sobriety, and I even gave up names of others because I'm honest. I'm not going to lie. I fully expected punishment because I broke the rules, nothing new about that, but someone heard about what I did and said that we are dangerous, we endangered the lives of others by smoking spice and when I said I couldn't imagine spice having the crazy effect they were saying it had, my superiors laughed. One even left the room because he thought I was so dellusional. Wtf. I am a ****ing veteran! I serve dead veterans! Now because of this hate campaign against drugs the only benefit I'll get from my years of brutal service is the knowledge and honor that I gave families the honor that their fallen family member deserved, and I did it with the legendary precision and dedication expected of the Old Guard.
Should I be discharged from the military for smoking spice and tell me why. I know I broke a lawful order, but excelled at my job. Less that 1% of 1% get SELECTED for the Old Guard, Official Escort to the President.

I smoked a lot of that shit too. It wasn't that bad.

You were in the military. You should have had the discipline to avoid that shit, and the common sense to stop AND keep your mouth shut. As far as I'm concerned, the Army just excised another tumor

This one, however, is not bad. Except thyme is an herb, not a spice

Thyme isn't even a spice! Do your research next time, otherwise your puns will just keep saffron for it.

Wait a minute. You practically drank yourself to death every day, and since the military tolerates that, it's okay. You then proceed to a drug that's banned by the military and are astonished that you're discharged ?

Typical.

Next time I'll proceed more gingerly and make sure I'm not misinformed.

The capers of being in the army do take their toll.

You should go to Dr. Pepper about your addiction.

You deserved to be kicked out and have the shit beat out of you.

ok, to get help for drinking you have to miss work twice a week and bring down everyone around you because they have to pick up the slack. I could have done that OR i could have just switched over to spice and there would be no more drinking affecting my work performance. It worked, didn't drink for a year. But when I was too hooked on spice I confessed to my higher ups about what i was doing and got promoted for confessing. And I got put in a drug/alcohol abuse treatment program. Yay! But then one guy decided he needed to play God and decided my friends and I all needed to be seperated from the army for breaking a lawful order, even though we made voluntary confessions. Were infantrymen, we volunteered to get shot at, we got problems that followed us into the military, but we were fixing them. Now were being spit back on the street like trash while people laugh at us, people who drink and get fat, lie, hit their wives, yell at their kids, get dui's, really shitty people, but I'M the shitty person? Cuz I smoked spice and incense as a means to stop drinking and deal with stress in my own way so I wouldn't have to slow down or slow anyone else down?

I didn't rat shit out, bitch. Obviously I'm dealing with it; still the king of this organization till I'm let go. Getting married, buying a house, cuz i'm a ****ing soldier and nothing gets me down. I'm just saying people who are afraid of drugs and drug users are ****ing with system and filling up jails. People like you, ****ing chick.
